Steve Perry sings Beach Boys classic in home isolation video

Steve Perry covers The Beach Boys classic, “In My Room”, in a newly-released video from home isolation during the current global health crisis.

“One late night, I was sitting in my room thinking about so many things,” Perry explains. “This song came into my mind, and it brought me some comfort. I hope it does the same for you. Stay safe.”

The tune was featured on the California band’s third album, 1963’s ”Surfer Girl”; it was also issued a b-side to the “Be True To Your School” single (from 1963’s “Little Deuce Coupe” album), with both songs earning US Top 40 status.

“In My Room” was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1999.

Perry released his first album in 25 years, “Traces”, in 2018; the former Journey rocker recorded the set alongside co-producer Thom Flowers at his home studio, with only strings done at Capitol Records.

The project debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 to deliver Perry his first solo US top 10 album on the chart.
